The work of Jeffrey Smart has always stood out to me. I first came across his work at school, during art class. One of his most famous oil paintings being 'Cahill Expressway' is a captivating and intriguing piece, that I have continued to be fascinated with. But the other aspect of his work that I love is the amazing use of colour and light..... stunning!
